Employed To Serve have just dropped the next single from their upcoming fourth album Conquering.

After debuting the LP's lead single Exist live at Download Pilot, the band have now shared the thundering Mark Of The Grave, which vocalist Justine Jones says "is about people who'd rather put other people down, instead of getting on with their own lives".

She adds: "When writing this song we wanted to try our hand at writing a positive metal anthem for people to blast when they're having a shitty day. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we had fun recording and writing it! Stay kind."

Conquering is due out on September 17 via Spinefarm, with Justine calling it the band's "best work to date".

"We wanted to go a more metal-orientated direction with this album and see how far we could push our musical capabilities," she enthused.
